United States | 2016 | Jon Nguyen, Rick Barnes, Olivia Neergaard-Holm
It’s only one month before the re-launch of Twin Peaks, so the time is right for this new documentary about the show’s enigmatic and idiosyncratic creator. David Lynch: The Art Life is nothing less than an artistic coming-of-age story and autobiography in which the now 70-year-old director of Blue Velvet and Mulholland Dr. recounts his idyllic American childhood, his love of painting, and his formative years at various art and film schools. (These culminated in the making of Eraserhead.) Lots of weird stories, too. DCP. 90 min.
